If you have a mixed-breed, don't glue or tape the ears. Let them do what they'll do, because they will anyway. When I was a kid, I had a GSD whose ears wouldn't go up, so I tried to glue foam curlers in there as supports.... all I did, I think, is make them fall down more! As it turned out, my dog wasn't a purebred GSD after all, but a mix with Labrador, so those ears probably wouldn't have stood no matter what I did.
Enjoy your dog, no matter what kind of ears she has! At 4.5 months, it could go either way, they may stand on their own after teething is done. Make sure her diet is good with plenty of animal protein and nutrient value. Giving her raw, meaty bones to chew on will help.
